I'm going to comment and wait for all the "great" comments to follow. I wonder how some of you
finger pointers would feel if you had a 17 year old child killed. No one is claiming the kid to be a saint, but he didn't deserve to die for walking around the complex of town homes where he lived.

I asked a police officer how long they are supposed to fight someone who is unarmed and if they are allowed to shoot to kill. The answer was that they better not shoot and for sure shouldn't' KILL an unarmed person. Z knew he was unarmed. He wanted to kill him before the 911 call got someone there. He was told by a neighbor that they were calling 911 and others called as well. He could not manage to hold him off for a minute or two? Police had already been dispatched.

No one took him seriously because he called every time a "suspicious" person broke wind in the complex. He thought he was a hero. Not so much.
I think he had an active fantasy life or watched too much Batman, Spiderman, and Superman.

Why was he turned down to go to the police academy? Couldn't pass the psychological evaluation, too obese or too aggressive?
